Anyway, if we were starting today, we very well might have began with a format close to what Lisa Spiro has designed with her new "digitalresearchtools" wiki. This site has the potential to evolve into a very useful resource for those of us interested in applying information technologies to enhance research potential, and so I am pleased to put in a plug for it. According to the site's description:
"This wiki collects information about tools and resources that can help scholars (particularly in the humanities and social sciences) conduct research more efficiently or creatively. Whether you need software to help you manage citations, author a multimedia work, or analyze texts, Digital Research Tools will help you find what you're looking for. We provide a directory of tools organized by research activity, as well as reviews of select tools in which we not only describe the tool's features, but also explore how it might be employed most effectively by researchers."
